Foster Family Agreement
This is the written agreement that has been reached between you and the Fostering Service if you are approved. A foster family agreement is a non-legal agreement between the current foster family, the supervisory authority and the child, which aims to provide the child with a stable and loving home without the legally binding papers of adoption or guardianship. A foster family agreement is like a permanent placement with a fit and consenting parent – a caregiver is always responsible for assessing the case every 6 months until the child is no longer a court service. In deciding whether a foster family contract is the best destination for a child, the caregiver will do so: the Foster Family Agreement is not legally binding, the host family, when deciding that it can no longer care for the child at home, has the right to make that decision and the young people must be transferred to another station. It describes fostering service expectations about what you can offer and the support and training you can expect. Training, support and development standards for Foster Care..
